I am getting my car painted next month, and am considering getting the moldings painted body color. Anyone done this or know someone who has. Pictures would be great. <p>Gary <p> <br>

Re: Anyone Have Pics Of An 850 With The Moldings Painted Body Color? (yellow95)

Haven't seen this, but just an opinion, I think the dark mouldings give the 850 its distinctive look. The S70 came w/ painted mouldings & has its own look. Try restoring them w/ an over the counter product ($7-$8 & IPD sells one also) before painting. It might surprise you how good it looks. If not, clean them very well & paint away!<p>Good Luck

I have shots of my red 850 in the gallery with painted trim.<p>IMHO, it really cleas up the dated look and gives it a more refined stance.<p>Cheers,<br>Prospero

4u2nv or somebody had it done.. i've seen it here in sf redone with the laser blue on a whole 850 wagon. just make sure the plastic bits are cleaned and primed properly... some of the pieces i saw on the repainted laser blue wagon was chipped and flaking..
